Description

Buddhist Insights will join the Climate Strike on September 20th.

Below we copied/pasted the details from Action Network. See you all there!

All donations on this page will be given to Rainforest Trust, a non-profit organization donating 100% of the money raised to conservation of the rainforests. https://www.rainforesttrust.org



On September 20, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC and on the two year anniversary of Hurricane Maria, young people and adults will strike all across the US and the world to demand transformative action to address the climate crisis. Millions of us will take to the streets globally to demand justice for our present and a right to a future. In New York, we will march and rally to demand real action by our elected officials and world leaders.

Hurricane Maria tore through communities in Puerto Rico, devastating the Island back in 2017. Two years later, the Puerto Rican diáspora is rising and joining the Climate Strike to honor the 4,645 lives lost in the worst natural disaster recorded in the island’s history. Climate catastrophes like Maria are fueled by powerful hedge funds that profit from the climate crisis. They invest millions in fossil fuel companies driving climate change while pushing for crippling austerity measures caused in part by climate change. This is why climate justice is economic justice.

We will gather at Foley Square and then take to the streets to march to Battery Park. The event will conclude with speakers and performers, including Fridays For Future movement starter Greta Thunberg and NY-based youth leaders.
